Bloomberg’s Balmy

I realize that he wants to be president of the United States one day, but, despite what one might think, telling whoppers is not presidential:

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said last week that “nobody” had illegal crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in a “long time.”

Bloomberg also advised that it would be easier for those wishing to illegally immigrate to the United States to simply buy a ticket to fly here and then overstay their visa.

Excuse me? The fact that he’s thousands of miles from the border of which he speaks is not reason for his lack of knowledge. While it is indeed easy for some to fly here and overstay their visas, it is far more attractive for those quite poor Mexicans who are already on the ground to make their way across the border and north by foot.

How else does one explain all the illegals who are dying in the desert? Did they fly into Sky Harbor and then turn around and head back into one of the most inhospitable places in the area for fun?
